The Dubai School Inspection Bureau (DSIB) of KHDA was established by the Dubai government in 2007. DSIB’s role is to provide comprehensive information on the standard of private school education, which helps to inform improvement planning at school and policy level. This is achieved through a number of approaches, including annual school inspections, parents meetings and focus groups, teachers, parents and students surveys.
What is inspected?
Inspectors will find answers to a number of key questions such as –
How good are the students’ attainment and progress in key subjects?
How good is the students’ personal and social development?
How good are the teaching, learning and assessment?
How well does the curriculum meet the educational needs of all students?
How well does the school protect and support its students?
How good are the leadership and management of the school?
